Saying goodbye to expensive monitors during laparoscopic procedures
Together with medical device company BD and Dr. Tollens (general and abdominal surgeon at Imelda Hospital), we created a HoloLens application that visualizes laparoscopic footage in real-time. This allows Dr. Tollens and the Imelda hospital to remove all monitors in the OR. As medical devices are often extremely expensive, this saves the hospital a lot of money.
In close collaboration with Dr. Tollens and the Imelda Hospital, we created a custom application for the HoloLens. We went for an AR solution as it still allows Dr. Tollens to clearly see his real-life surroundings while wearing the device. On top of that, the HoloLens is an untethered stand-alone computer, which allows Dr. Tollens to move around in the OR undisrupted if necessary. The application we built visualizes laparoscopic footage in real-time. Just like the monitors do.
